Description

When I run the following command

$ cat file1.png file2.png | ffmpeg -y -f image2pipe -r 1 -vcodec png -i - out.mp4

I get the following error.

This is a long standing issue. I found an old patch and updated it to work with the latest version of ffmpeg in the git repository.

Here's the fix:

You can use the following as example png files to replicate the issue:

This problem has been hanging around for a long time. It would be great to finally get it patched into the main trunk.
